[PySide] fading a widget on and off

Hi all,

once again I'm looking for a nudge in the right direction please:

I'd like to be able to fade a widget on and off (based on the state of a 
checkbox), and am wondering if I should write a custom paintEvent that 
renders the widget as a pixmap at the respective transparency or if I 
should look into QState and QStateMachine instead?! I have never used 
states but it sounds like that will enable me to subsequently use 
QtCore.QPropertyAnimation on a custom property (like opacity), is that 

Or is there another way I should be exploring?
